A BRAVE boy pedalled up a fantastic total of £240 in a 25-mile charity bike ride.

Callum Gauntlet, who will be starting at King Edwards Five Ways Grammar School in September, set himself a physical challenge to raise money for the Primrose Hospice’s Big Appeal.

The 11-year-old set up shop on a Turbo Trainer outside Bromsgrove’s ASDA and with the support of his mum, Sally, and sister, Evie, reached his grand target.

Helen Garfield, the Primrose Hospice’s chief executive officer, said: “It is great to see people like Callum offering to support us.

“Twenty-five miles is a long way to cycle and the money raised will help us to get nearer to our target.

“Callum, his mum and sister have been generous with their time and energy and the local people who sponsored Callum have been generous with their money.

“It is wonderful to know we have the support of our local community and we really appreciate what Callum has achieved - he is a very special young man.”
